Graduate School 


Graduate education at the Agricultural and Technical College of North 
Carolina was authorized by the North Carolina State Legislature in 1939. 
The authorization provided for graduate training in agriculture, technology, 
applied science and applied areas of study. An extension of the graduate 
program, approved by the General Assembly of North Carolina in 1957, 
provided for enlargement of the curriculum to include teacher education, 
as well as such other programs of a professional or occupational nature 
as might be approved by the North Carolina State Board of Higher 


The Graduate School coordinates advanced course offerings of all depart- 
ments within three academic schools of the College, namely, the School of 
Agriculture, the School of Education and General Studies, and the School 
of Engineering. 

The Graduate School offers the academically r.ature student a type of 
instruction consistent with the demands of con + jmporary society. Graduate 
study is particularly recommended for those individuals whose interests 
and aptitudes carry them beyond routine implication. Students are ex- 
pected to develop their powers of independent thought and to become 
familiar with the discipline of research. 

The Graduate School seeks to 1) provide the requisite environment for 
its students by frequent and critical re-evaluation of the curricula and 
2) observe strict adherence to standards set forth by the faculties of the 
College and to the standards of the appropriate accrediting agencies. 


Faculty of the Graduate School. The faculty of the Graduate School 
is composed of individuals who have been recommended by deans of their 
schools and have been approved by the Graduate School Council and the 
President of the College. Full-time members of the College faculty who 
are assigned to teach graduate courses are also associated with under- 
graduate instruction. 

Graduate School Council. Members of the Council are appointed by the 
President of the College. The Dean of the Graduate School serves as Coun- 
cil Chairman. Two specific functions of the Council are, 1) to determine 
requirements for graduate degrees, and 2) to recommend to the President 
of the College policies for the Graduate School. The Council serves as a 
representative body for the Graduate School faculty. 

Advisory Committees of the Graduate School. Several standing commit- 
tees of the Graduate School are organized to advise the Council on 
matters pertaining to present policies, to evaluate existing and proposed 

programs of study, and to process student petitions relating to academic 
matters. These committees are: 

Committee on Curriculums and New Programs 
Committee on Publications 
Committee on Student Affairs and Petitions 
Committee on Admissions and Retention 
Committee on Library Holdings 


The Graduate School of the Agricultural and Technical College offers 
the Master of Science degree in the following fields: Agricultural Educa- 
tion, Chemistry, Education, and Industrial Arts Education. 


The College maintains five residence halls for women and two for men. 
A request for dormitory housing accommodation should be directed to the 
Dean of Students at least one quarter prior to the expected date of regis- 


The College provides food service for students at minimum cost. Two 
well-equipped cafeterias and a snack bar are operated at convenient loca- 
tions on the campus. Only students who live in the residence halls are 
required to eat in the cafeterias. 


The College provides some programs to assist students experiencing finan- 
cial difficulties, but rarely can the institution defray the total expenses of 
an individual. The National Defense Student Loan Fund is available to a 
number of persons who need assistance in continuing their work at the 
college. Further information regarding this program, as well as other 
inquiries concerning financial aid, should be directed to: The Student Aid 
Officer, A. and T. College, Greensboro, N. C. 


The fees charged full-time graduate students carrying 15 semester hours 
of work are the same as those charged to full-time undergraduate students. 
For one academic year, a state resident should expect to pay approxi- 
mately $339.00, which will cover tuition and course fees. This sum does not 
include room and board charges. Tuition and course fees for an out-of-state 
student carrying a full schedule will total about $591.00 for the academic 

As student fees are subject to change without prior notice, it is sug- 
gested that the Cashier's Office be consulted for complete information con- 
cerning charges for full- and part-time students.

A minimum of thirty (30) semester credits is required for the Master 
of Science degree at the Agricultural and Technical College of North 
Carolina. The thirty (30) semester credits represent the minimum quantity 
of work acceptable for the Master of Science degree. Inadequate preparation 
for graduate study however, may make additional hours of credit necessary 
for a candidate to complete the requirements for a degree. 


The applicant chooses the major field of study. An advisory committee 
of the Graduate School assists the student in designing his program until 
he has been admitted to candidacy. Normally the student must complete 
a program of prescribed course work consisting of 12 to 15 hours before 
he may apply for admission to candidacy. When the prescribed work has 
been completed, the student must apply for the Qualifying Examination. 

All students will be required to present evidence of satisfactory perform- 
ance on a qualifying examination before admission to candidacy for the 
degree. The qualifying examination must sample the student's general 
knowledge of a given discipline and the competence of the student to use 
effectively the English language in composition. 

Notification of admission to or denial of candidacy will be sent to the 
student from the Graduate School Office, after evaluation of: (1) the 
applicant's academic record from the Admissions Office, (2) results of the 
Graduate Record Examination, and (3) recommendations from all com- 
mittees which administered such other tests as are required for admission 
to candidacy. 

Performance on the qualifying examination may result in admission to 
candidacy without deficiencies, admission to candidacy with addition of 
course hours in a major or minor field or both, or failure to be admitted 
to candidacy. 

In consultation with the adviser, the student develops and commits 
himself to a program of study which meets the requirements for the 
degree. The course requirements may include graduate credits earned 
prior to admission to candidacy and must be submitted to the Dean of 
the Graduate School for approval. A proposed program may be revised 
upon written approval of the adviser and the Graduate School Dean. 


The student, in consultation with his adviser, selects the degree program 
to be followed. The adviser must notify the chairman of the department of 
the program plan which the candidate prefers to follow. 


For those who select the thesis option, the program of study shall 
consist of thirty semester hours including the thesis. After the chair- 
man of the department has been duly notified of the candidates 

intention to follow the thesis option, the candidate shall prepare and 
present the thesis proposal to the adviser. Upon the request of the 
adviser, the Dean of the Graduate School shall appoint a Thesis 
Proposal Committee and shall fix a time of meeting. Following accept- 
ance of the proposal, the adviser must submit to the Dean of the 
Graduate School an approved copy of the proposal in its final form. 
Individuals who have been granted the privilege of following the thesis 
option are expected to demonstrate research competencies and to pre- 
pare a scholarly account of resulting data. 


The Non-Thesis plan is offered to the candidate who may benefit more 
from a broader range of knowledge than from the preparation of a 
thesis. The program of study must consist of a minimum of 36 credit 
hours of prescribed courses. 

Individuals who are following this plan must demonstrate their ability 
to conduct and to report the results of original research by preparing 
a paper as a part of the course Special Problems or Research or Seminar 
in the appropriate area. 


All candidates for the Master of Science degrees, except Master of Science 
in Chemistry, must complete the core requirements which follow: 

1. Education 2183 or 2187 or Ind. Arts 3596 or Ag. Educ. 1283 

2. Education 2281 (Statistics). 

3. Psychology 2390 (Educational Psychology). 

4. In non-thesis plan, Education 2282 or credit for Seminar in Chemistry 
or Biology. In the thesis plan, Education 2292 or Ag. Educ. 1299 or 
Chemistry 1799 or Ind. Arts 3599. 


The Department of Agricultural Education offers work leading to the 
Master of Science degree in Agricultural Education. Admission to the 
program requires that an applicant must have completed an undergraduate 
major in agriculture from an accredited four-year college and show evidence 
that he meets requirements for a collegiate teacher's certificate in Agri-

Grading System. Grades are recorded by letters as follows: for courses, 
A, B, C, D, I, F, (failure), for thesis research, P (a temporary grade 
to indicate that the thesis is in progress). The I indicates that work is 
incomplete and it must be removed within the following semester. 

1. In order to earn a degree, a student must have a cumulative average 
of "B." This is intended to mean a grade point average of 3.0 on the 
4.0 point system. 

2. A student automatically goes on probation when his cumulative 
average falls below "B," however subsequently he may be notified by 
the Dean of the Graduate School! 

3. A student must repeat any required course in which he has made a 
grade of "D" or "F." He may not repeat the course more than once. 

Registration for No Credit. A student may register for no credit (NC) 
in any course if he has the approval of his adviser and the Chairman of 
the Department. In determining the total study load allowed, "NC" courses 
are counted at the equivalent credit value. The tuition charge for "NC" 
courses is the same as for credit courses, and the courses are listed on the 
student's permanent record. As no grade is reported by the instructor, no 
attendance records are maintained. "NC" registrants cannot change to 
become credit registrants after the deadline for credit registration has 

Auditing. Auditing privileges in which additional fees are waived are 
extended only to full-time students, To audit a course, the student must 
obtain permission from the Dean of the Graduate School and must submit 
the necessary forms during registration period. A change from "credit" 
registration to "Audit" will not be permitted following the close of a 
deadline date for change in program. 

Schedule of Deadlines. The Graduate School provides schedules of specific 
dates for completing various requirements for a degree program. These 
notices are not sent to individuals automatically, but may be found in the 
calendar of the Graduate School, available upon request. 

Concurrent Registration in other Institutions. A student registered in a 
degree program in this Graduate School may not enroll concurrently in 
another graduate school except upon permission secured in advance, from 
the Dean of the Graduate School. 


Requests for Grade Reports, Transcripts or Record Evaluation. The 
Admissions Office is the official record-keeping office at the College. Requests 
for official statements regarding courses completed, grade reports or tran- 
scripts should be filed in that office. 

Class Loads. 

1. Full-Time Students: Class loads for the full-time student may 
range from 12 to 15 semester hours during a regular session of the 
academic year. 

2. In-Service Teachers: The maximum load for a fully employed in- 
service teacher must not exceed six semester hours during any 
academic year. 

3. College Staff: The maximum load for any fully employed member 
of the College faculty or staff will be six semester hours for the 
academic year. 


A minimum of three fourths ( % ) of the hours required for the degree 
must be earned in residence study at the College for students following 
the thesis or the non-thesis program. 


The graduate program must be completed within six successive calendar 
years. Programs remaining incomplete after this time interval are subject 
to cancellation, revision, or special examination for out-dated work. Credit 
transferred from another institution becomes void if it falls within a 
cancelled period of the student's program. 

When the program of study is interrupted because the student has been 
drafted into the armed services, the time limit shall be extended for the 
length of time the student shall have been on active duty, if the candidate 
resumes graduate work no later than one year following his release from 
military service. 


The Graduate Record Examination is required of all students who desire 
to become candidates for degrees. Information concerning the time, place 
and cost of the examination may be obtained from the Office of the Dean 
of the Graduate School. 

Note: Students pursuing degrees must fulfill the contract in force at the 
time of their initial matriculation. If more than six years have ensued, the 
program and contract may be re-evaluated and re-established. The contracts
